'll just keep doing it in the halls. >> okay, great. >> cheers. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour as well. we do have a lot more ahead about don't ask, don't tell, lady gaga, the big day tomorrow, and the wrench that senator john mccain is so lustily throwing into the works on this issue. a report from the scene of today's rally with u.s. air force major mike elmi, and from capitol hill on what could be another filibuster eve. and there are two big reasons why thursday is a day to mark on your electoral calendar. it should favor democrats and howard dean will help us explain. that's all to come. >>> but first, when a political candidate comes from outside mainstream politics and that candidate gets nominated to represent a major party, and part of that candidate's appeal is that they come from outside mainstream politics, there's now a well-established process of making that candidate over, subtly, to make them seem more mainstreamy for the general election. we saw that process in action with the post-primary scrubbing of republican senate candidate, sharron angl
" for now. thanks for being with us. countdown with keith olbermann starts now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? going out with a whim per, not a burn. the threat of the burning of the koran equates with afghanistan. the president hits several high notes. >> part of my concern is to make sure we don't start having a whole bunch of folks all across the country think this is the way to get attention. >> blowing the whistle on the gop's perpetual stall on every remedy, on every reform, on every relief. retiring republican ohio senator george voinovich will back obama's small business proposals. we don't have time for messaging, we don't have time anymore. this country is really hurting. >> what i've got is the republicans holding middle class tax relief hostage because they're insisting we've got to give tax relief to millionaires and billionaires. >> don't ask, don't tell, unconstitutional because of a lawsuit filed by republicans. the form of irony, but still a hoot. our guest, lieutenant dan choy. worse, suspected from school because his eyes were bloodshot, o
, senator. >> major mike almy joins us live. >>> and the senator standing for reelection by write-in scores a sad own goal against her own campaign. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> today in the united states senate, language in the defense authorization bill that would let the military "don't ask, don't tell" fell to defeat. senate republicans, in fact, took the historic step of filibustering the entire defense authorization bill in order to maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. they would not even allow debate on the defense bill because it included that language to let the military repeal its own policy on keeping gay people out of the military. and so we don't have a bill to fund the military this year. at least so far. and the "don't ask, don't tell" policy lives. what happens next? well, here is a clue. when i interviewed vice president joe biden less than a week ago, i asked him why if the administration was so opposed to "don't ask, don't tell," why were they still implementing it? why were they still discharging openly gay members of the u.s. military now that
a terrorist attack, even though her father and his president were responsible for us having to absorb the last one. >>> as christine o'donnell finds the gold mine, on the same subject, sharron angle has a big mouth. >> when i said it on sean hannity's television show, we made $40,000 before we even got out of the studio in new york. >> the revelation that fox news is one giant fund-raising and publicity gift in kind to the republican party. i know, you're shocked. >> i'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here. >> your winnings, sir. >>> all the news and commentary now on "countdown." >> i had some business in new york today, so thank you for having me on. >>> good evening from new york. with the final session of congress before election day coming down to the wire now, democrats are still torn between whether to force republicans to vote now in defense of tax cuts for the rich or to duck a vote on extending the bush tax cuts and let republicans campaign against them for letting all taxes rise. if it seems like a no-brainer, our fifth story tonight should remove all doubt. a
, luke. keep us posted and let us know. >> will do. >> when we get a final tally on the vote. i want to bring in rachel maddox. as you know, a couple of the waivering republicans said you've got to give us a little more room for amendments here. harry reid said no. this is the result. >> well, there's a couple of things. first of all, it's a historic decision to filibuster the defense reauthorization bill. this is something that has passed 48 times in 48 years. it just passes. this is one of the things that just passes. and that's why actually you've seen over the years lots of amendments, lots of things passed that are attached to this. originally when don't ask, don't tell was instituted, it was passed as an amendment to this bill. in 2007, we saw republican senator orrin hatch attach the dream act to this bill. some of john mccain's campaign finance provisions have been attached to this bill. so republican objections that they are very upset about democratic amendments to this are a little strange, given how many amendments republicans have attached to it. also harry reid's office

's going -- any time there's a use of deadly force by police officers, it's a long investigation and that will go through the investigative process. >> was he threatening the hostages at that point? >> based on the information that we had, we believed that it was -- that the hostages' lives were in danger. >> was he shot from the inside? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> just to be clear, once he was shot, the explosives went off? >> i don't know the order in which he went down and the explosive device went off. >> [ inaudible question ] >> we had been talking to him for several hours, and he had a wide range of emotions during our negotiations. >> and what was his complaint directed at the discovery communications building? >> you know, i don't have all that information. i know that he had some history with folks at discovery channel, and i believe in fact that he was arrested here a couple of years ago, and so we -- there is some history between he and the discovery folks. >> when the explosion went off, was he wearing it? >> i -- i don't know. i don't have any information
